John Deere announced on Aug. 8 that it has partnered with HCSS, a provider of management solutions for the construction industry.
The partnership will allow both companies to work together to enhance John Deere WorkSight™, a technology solution that provides construction machinery insight, and put JDLink™ data in the hands of customers.
"Our partnership with HCSS empowers customers to leverage the existing telematics connection on their John Deere equipment and see their JDLink machine data in the powerful HCSS tool suite in conjunction with other telematic brands," said Liz Quinn, product marketing manager of John Deere WorkSight. "In addition, customers will be able to easily link from the HCSS application to the MyJohnDeere.com environment when they need to order parts, manuals, or have a closer look at a John Deere machine in the JDLink Dashboard.”
JP Giometti, director of strategy and research and development at HCSS, says that integrating JDLink with his company’s technology will provide customers with data to make more informed decisions.
"We look forward to utilizing the open JDLink Machine Data API and integrating that vital telematics data into our HCSS products,” said Matthew DiTarando, John Deere customer and IT manager at COMANCO Environmental Corporation.
HCSS is also an alpha tester of the JDLink Machine Data API, which is slated to launch later in 2016. More information on John Deere WorkSight can be found by visiting www.JohnDeere.com/WorkSight or contacting your local John Deere dealer.
